Hoping for a crafty week

OK so the hubby is going out of town for a week. I will be a single mom. It's tiring but I get my nights to myself. when my husband leaves it is always my goal to get the house organized and get some crafting done. VERY rarely does the first happen. I do usually pull out a lot of stuff and do some project. Currently I have an altered book to work on. I am part of a round robin. It's fun. The theme for the book that I sent out is 'For the Love of Books'. First I received one about idioms and now I've received one titled 'It's Time to...'.
For those of you who don't know, and I didn't for a long time, a Round Robin or 'RR' envolves more than one person. You pick a project and everyone in your group starts something then you send that something off to the next person in your group. When you get your original back you have something created by a bunch of different artists. Pretty Awesome.
If you're not sure what an Altered Book is... Well, it's pretty much what it sounds like. You start with a book, any old book will do, and you turn it into something new. I'd never done one before and I"m finding that it's pretty cool.
I'm also vowing to make at least ONE t-shirt for myself this week. I'm going to pretend that I really believe I will organize my side of the bedroom this week as well. Maybe I'll just make a small goal like clearing off my dresser or throwing out all the junk mail I like to accumulate... OOOO maybe I can learn how to make paper... Hmmm...
